National Child Benefit Reinvestment
The National Child Benefit Reinvestment (NCBR) is one component of the wider National Child Benefit (NCB) initiative. The NCB has two components: a financial benefits component that goes directly to individuals (e.g. the federal Canada Child Tax Benefit) and a reinvestment component – the National Child Benefit Reinvestment (NCBR) – that provides community-based supports and services for children in low-income families. AANDC's NCBR is the on-reserve counterpart to reinvestment projects/programming administered by applicable provinces/territories off-reserve. There are five activity areas for the NCBR on-reserve: childcare; child nutrition; support for parents; home-to-work transition; and cultural enrichment. The expected outcomes include a reduction in the effects of child poverty and decreased barriers for parents/guardians to become or remain attached to the workforce.
NCBR Project/Program Funding
Eligible recipients for NCBR project/program funding include Chief and Councils of Indian Bands, Tribal Councils, First Nation organizations, provincial, territorial, and municipal governments and agencies, volunteer and not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and educational institutions.
NCBR Beneficiary Eligibility
Beneficiaries of NCBR supports and services must be ordinarily resident on-reserve, and must be children (aged 0-17 inclusive) living in low-income families or the parents/ guardians of these children.
